Hello,

I have posted a few months ago in regards to my duck having a sore leg. I separated her for 2 months and gave her Niacin daily. After a few weeks of separation I found there was no improvement and she wasn't moving normal. I took her to the vet. After the examination the vet said that everything seems to be fine and to give her lots of swim time as she may have injured it at some point.
I provided her with lots of swim time and kept her separated in hopes that she will gain some strength in her leg.

There doesn't seem to be any improvement. I'm not sure if she is just permanently handicapped or if someone else has dealt with this.

I have attached a photo.

She occasionally has strength when she is cleaning her self to stand right up and clean her belly but when she talks she drags her butt and walks on her "upper leg" like the photo attached.

Question what form of niacin? If it was time released or flush free then neither of those will help. You took her to the vet and he didn’t think there was anything wrong with her standing or walking like that?

When I took her to the vet - they examined her legs, they made her stand up and said that everything appears fine. I explained she has a limp when she walks and she sits a lot.

The Niacin I provided her were normal Niacin pills. I had made that mistake when I first started giving her niacin and realized they were flush free.

Can you get to TSC and get her some liquid BComplex? Seems once a duckling has a leg issues that the liquid b jumps in and works faster. 1 ml a day. It’s in the cattle section and will say injectable but can be given orally it’s def worth trying.
